For the second time this season, the two Floyd County varsity football teams hooked up in a wild and wacky offensive meeting. And for the second time in as many games, the outcome was the same.
When the two teams met on Oct. xx it took 61 points for the Floyd Central Highlanders to take control of the coveted Anchor trophy. Friday’s game didn’t have the same kind of offensive numbers, but it was close as FC edged New Albany 48-47.
The Highlanders are 9-2 as they prepare for their third consecutive home game in Class 4A sectional xx. FCHS will host Castle Friday. That game is a re-match of last year’s sectional title game that the Highlanders won 42-32.
Castle got to the title game by beating Jennings County 69-27.
FC’s road was far more competitive.
New Albany led for much of the first half as they scored three touchdowns giving them a 19-7 advantage.
The Highlanders only first quarter score came on a seven-yard run by Kyle Bramble. Brock Slavens took the ball on PAT.
FC cut New Albany’s lead to three just before half time when Bramble scored again, this time from three yards out. The PAT again was successful as Garrett Shanks threw a pass to Bramble.
Both teams managed to scored touchdowns and two-point conversions in the third quarter.
Dylan Jenney scored six for the Highlanders and Shanks threw a pass to Jordan Thompson putting them up 24-19.
That advantage was short-lived, however as the Bulldogs scored again.
The back-and-forth continued as FC scored on an 84-yard run by Slavens and again Shanks and Thompson connected on the PAT.
The Highlanders answered every New Albany run with one of their own.
Bramble scored on a 24-yard run and then added the two point conversion himself.
The game-clinching scored from FC came when Forest Ridge picked up a New Albany fumble and returned it for the touchdown.
The two teams combined for more than 800 yards of total offense, 385 of which was gained by the Highlanders.
Bramble led the way with 41 carries for 186 yards and Slavens finished with 125 yards on four carries.
Floyd Central’s Players of the Week were Cody Brewer (offensive line); Joey Quinkert (defensive line); Slavens (offensive and defensive backs) and Austin Wirth (special teams); Brett Zoll had the big hit and Slavens had the big play.
Friday’s meeting between Castle and FCHS will be just the second meeting in the past 15 years. The two teams are 1-1 in those meetings.
The winner of Friday’s game will take on the winner between Whiteland and Bloomington North in Sectional 7.
According to the Indianahighschoolfootball Web site, the game is slated to begin at 7 p.m., but fans planning to attend, should confirm kick-off with the school’s athletic office.
Admission to the game is $6.
